Chlodwig Karl Viktor Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, Fürst zu

Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, Chlodwig Karl Viktor, Fürst zu (klōtˈvĭkh kärl vĭkˈtôr fürst tsō hōˈənlōˌə-shĭlˈĭngsfürst) [key], 1819–1901, German chancellor (1894–1900). As premier of Bavaria (1866–70), he favored German unification, and in 1871 he entered the service of the German Empire and became one of Bismarck's staunchest supporters. He was ambassador to Paris (1874–80) and governor of Alsace-Lorraine (1885–94). Succeeding Leo von Caprivi as chancellor in 1894, he delegated most of his duties to his cabinet, especially the foreign secretaries Marschall von Bieberstein and Bernhard von Bülow. The latter succeeded Hohenlohe when he retired in 1900.
